Banksy is one of my favourite artists right now. He creates very interesting pieces (many of which have underlying messages regarding social issues) and the fact that he continues to remain anonymous is pretty cool. His latest thing is a large exhibit at a gallery where only a few people knew that there was going to be an exhibit of his work (staff and patrons were told that part of the gallery was closed for filming). He communicated with the gallery remotely and, though he was likely part of the team setting up the exhibit, no one, not even the exhibit coordinators, knows who he is.
Here’s a video explaining the whole thing and showing some of the work
And, here are some close-ups of some of his pieces.
He’s pretty bloody impressive.
